Where Does Steven Gerrard Rank Among Liverpool Greats?

Michael Cummings@MikeCummings37World Football Lead WriterApril 11, 2013

In his 15 years as a professional footballer, Steven Gerrard has become not only a fan favorite, but a living legend at Liverpool. Since making his first-team debut at age 18 in 1998, Gerrard has been a major part of Liverpool’s greatest moments in recent times.

There was the 2005 UEFA Champions League final, an unforgettable night in Istanbul when Gerrard led Liverpool back from a 3-0 deficit to beat AC Milan for the title. Then there were the FA Cup titles, league cup triumphs and a UEFA Cup crown. And since 2003, Gerrard has served as captain, getting an official title for his on-field leadership.

So, where does he rank among Liverpool’s all-time greats? Gerrard has never won the English league title, but he has no doubt served his club with distinction for a decade-and-a-half. But is that enough to put him ahead of a name like Kenny Dalglish?

In the clip above, B/R World Football Lead Writers Michael Cummings and Will Tidey discuss that very question. After watching, be sure to add your thoughts to the comments below.
